Trex Deck Installation in Mentor, Ohio

Contact Us

Nestled in the heart of Mentor, Ohio, our latest deck installation project is a testament to the perfect fusion of style and functionality. This 16×16 deck, featuring Trex Havana Gold decking, stands as a golden oasis that elevates outdoor living to new heights.

The choice of Havana Gold decking sets the tone for a warm and inviting atmosphere, creating a space that seamlessly integrates with the natural surroundings. The 16×16 deck, strategically designed to maximize square footage, offers ample space for relaxation, entertainment, and soaking in the beauty of the outdoors.

Trex Select railings were chosen not only for their durability but also for their timeless design. The sleek lines of the railings add a touch of elegance while ensuring safety for all who enjoy this outdoor haven.

Privacy takes center stage with the incorporation of white lattice expertly trimmed out with Havana Gold fascia. This combination not only provides a sense of seclusion but also adds a visual dimension to the deck, creating a captivating outdoor retreat.

The project involved the demolition of the previous deck to make way for a simple yet sophisticated design. The result is a space that seamlessly transitions to a newly installed stamped concrete patio, enhancing the overall aesthetics and functionality of the outdoor area.

Mentor, Ohio, now boasts a deck installation that marries beauty and practicality. This project is a celebration of outdoor living, where the golden hues of Trex Havana Gold decking harmonize with the surrounding landscape, creating a haven for relaxation and enjoyment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are you licensed and insured?

At 1918 Preservation we are fully insured with general liability insurance, business auto insurance, and workman's compensation. There is no license for deck building, but we are registered with the state as well as every municipality where we pull permits.

Do you have references?

Yes! Be sure to check out our reviews on Google and Facebook to learn more about our business and the quality of our work.

Is a permit necessary an who pulls the permits?

More often than not a permit is required on deck and fence projects. The scope of work as well as the city/county the home is in will dictate whether or not a permit is required. Per the IRC, if the deck is under 200 sq ft, less than 30" from the ground, and not attached to the home, a building permit is not required. Resurfacing a deck or doing repairs generally does not require a permit. 

At 1918 Preservation, our team handles pulling the permits, including plan and application submittal. We coordinate with the inspectors to schedule all necessary inspections as well.

Do you install wood decks and composite decks?

We install both wood and composite decks. There are several factors that come in to play when deciding which option is best for you. Cost is obviously a major factor with composite. Almost every composite brand has a high end decking option, their mid level decking, and also a lower-cost deck board option. The same is generally true with their railings as well. 

With a wood deck there will be annual maintenance costs as well as general upkeep. I often tell clients if you enjoy that type of work and don't mind doing it, take advantage of the cost difference and go with wood. 

There are several differences and intricacies with installing a composite deck versus a wood deck. Composite decks require additional steps as well as additional tools to complete the install process. This typically leads to a higher labor cost for similar sized wood deck. 

How long will the project take?

Projects will vary in duration, most taking between 4 and 8 days. Some of the factors that determine the length of a project include the presence of an existing deck that needs removed, the size of the new deck, and the layout of the area where the deck is being installed. Weather and city inspections also play a role in the duration of the project. We do everything we can to plan for the weather to avoid delays in finishing the build. We stay in constant communication with our customers and keep them informed on a potential finish date as well as any possible delays.

How long have you been in business?

We have been in business since June of 2019.

Do you offer any financing options?

We offer financing through Acorn, a 3rd party finance company that our customer's can go through directly. A link to their website will be located on the proposal that we send over. Our proposals stay the same amount whether you choose to pay traditionally or use financing. In other words, we don’t jack up the price because you elect to finance your project!
